It’s one thing to know the story of the Bible. It’s another thing to live it.
Grounded in carefully selected Scripture, Believe, NIV is a unique spiritual growth experience that takes you on a journey to think, act, and be more like Jesus. General editor and pastor Randy Frazee walks you through the ten key Beliefs of the Christian faith, the ten key Practices of a Jesus-follower, and the ten key Virtues that characterize someone who is becoming more like Jesus. Every believer needs to ask these three questions:
- WHAT DO I BELIEVE?
- WHAT SHOULD I DO?
- WHO AM I BECOMING?
Each chapter uses short topical passages from the New International Version to help you live the story of the Bible. As you journey through this Bible, whether in a group or on your own, one simple truth will become undeniably clear: what you believe drives everything.
Using this second edition of Believe, NIV, church families around the globe can now embrace a full ministry year through worship services, small group studies, and family activities.

What Do I Believe?
For where your treasure is,
there your heart will be also.
What we believe in our hearts will define who we become. God wants you to become like Jesus. This is who God created you to be. It is the most truthful and powerful way to live. The journey to becoming like Jesus begins by thinking like Jesus.
The following ten chapters will introduce and expose you to the key beliefs of the Christian life. These beliefs were not only taught by Jesus but also modeled by Jesus when he walked this earth. Because we live from the heart, embracing these core truths in both our minds and our hearts is the first step to truly becoming like Jesus.
Each of the following chapters contains Scripture passages from Genesis to Revelation focused on a particular belief. You are about to discover what God wants you to know and believe about these important topics. Embark on each page with a passion to learn and understand. Then prayerfully ask, “What do I believe?”
Fully adopting these fantastic truths in your heart may not come at the end of reading the chapter. If you are honest, it may take a while, and that is okay. The Christian life is a journey. There are no shortcuts. As each of the key concepts takes up residence in your heart they, with the amazing help of God’s presence in your life, will change your life for the good. When you start thinking like Jesus, you are well on your way to becoming like Jesus.
